Legoland Discovery Center

Over the summer break, the only thing ‘J’ wanted to do was head out to Legoland Discovery Center in Odaiba. 

So on a hot Friday morning, we headed out. 

LDC- has a couple of rides, but it is more… of a…. discovery Center where there are a variety of activities. 

The first room (Lego Factory) introduces how Lego is made. There are opportunities here for the children to turn dials and press out some Lego shapes, before moving onto the rides, models and making. 

Room 2, is the Kingdom Quest Ride- a ride where we had to shoot the ‘baddies’ with a laser gun for points. I managed knight status, J hunter status. 

We whizzed through Mini World- an amazingly lifelike Tokyo built entirely out of Lego bricks. Having visited twice before, J knew exactly where he wanted to go! I find the city fascinating, so I dawdled a bit. They show it in day and night mode, and the lighting of Tokyo is SO realistic. 

Just before you enter the main hall, there is an opportunity to sign up for the Creative Workshop. This is basically an opportunity for the children to build something following a set of instructions shown on a screen. J found it a touch slow, but he enjoyed it and was happy to receive a certificate and a copy of the instructions at the end.

The main hall has a variety of areas, a Ninjago soft play area, duplo soft play area, 4D Theatre, Sorcerers Apprentice ride, cafe and a Build and test. 

Heading downstairs was the primary purpose for our trip. The Train World. It here that J spent an hour pushing trains along the tracks, while I composed this post!

This was a fun few hours for J and I. With the building fully air conditioned, it was a great escape from the summer heat! 
Legoland is found in Decks, Odaiba and is easy to get to by train (2 minute walk from the Odaiba-Kaihin Koen station), or by car (there is a car park as part of the Decks complex and if you spent over ¥5000, you can get 4 hours free parking. 

The opening hours are from 10am and ticket prices are from ¥2400. 

About Cheryl

I am a child of God, a wife and a mother of 4 children. Some days are good. Some days are frustrating. Some days are just plain insane. In between the mayhem, I loved to go for walks with our mutt, potter in the garden and enjoy the beauty that surrounded us. That all changed in August 2012 when we waved goodbye to our mutt and garden, our eldest at Uni in Gloucester and moved to Tokyo for 4 months. And yes- we are still here...
